• Jules Reid

    Top Drawer | Dress Code  

    Jules Reid, with her Southern girl charm and an eclectic NYC sensibility has created a vibrant world of color, pattern, playfulness, and international chic that defines her namesake fashion collection. While she splits her time between New York and Virginia, I caught up with her in West Palm Beach to chat about her artistic drive to found her own interior design firm and the launch of her eponymous fashion collection in 2009. She has quickly become a favorite among the well traveled resort set, yet her designs are at home from Capri to the Vineyard, St. Barths to Malibu. The Jules Reid line is carried in over 50 specialty boutiques and at JulesReid.com.

    Your current wardrobe should always have a sense of humor. You will not be dull if your stylishness makes people smile. It is a misunderstanding that bold prints are faddy. You can play with bold prints in seasonal colours and still have a calm look.

    @Katherine—Slim Aarons is one of my photographic icons. That’s a very high compliment.


    Katherine left a comment on 11/22/2011 at 2:03 PM:

    I’m not sure if it’s the scene or the photography style, but to me this has a bit of a Slim Aarons feel to it. This could be one of his many shots with people in and around pools. Really nice picture FEC!

  • Groovy Palm Beach Vintage

    Store Profiles  

    Douglas Fredericks runs a quaint vintage shop on Palm Beach that could blow your mind, you know, if you're into that sort of thing.  I am.  The locals call him E.J. (his middle name) and they raid Groovy Palm Beach Vintage for the vintage Lilly Pilitzer and Emilio Pucci he's become known for since turning the lights on seven years ago.  Brightly patterned blazers and psychedelic print dresses line the walls and ceiling. Gucci snaffle bit loafers, Aldens, and Pucci heels nonchalantly sit on display.  But like any great vintage shop worth its weight in gold buttons, you still have to dig.

    Despite the prodigious curation, what you don't see is E.J.'s private collection that isn't for sale.  It alone contains over 40 vintage mens Lilly sportcoats (the one he's wearing is his favorite) and more Pucci than you could poke your signet ring finger at. All is hardly lost. I poach a pair of white bucks ($40), a paisley ascot ($25), and a Gant foulard tie ($20) originally sold at a men's shop by the name of Ermilio. The piece I really wanted? A crazy print mens Lilly blazer with original gold buttons ($525).

    I was just here about a week ago. I mentioned your post to EJ; he showed me a custom pair of Stubbs and Woottons that he said you’d probably be crazy about. It was definitely a cool experience visiting the store

    Fantastic! Thanks for posting this. When I was a teen in London in the pre-eBay days I wore tons of vintage stuff. I wish I had kept some of the nicer items.

    Is Church Mouse still going strong? They had some nice vintage items last I was there.. Been years since I’ve been out that way. If still in PB, stop in. However, they don’t or didn’t have near as much as this place.

    I thought I had made my way through every resource for vintage finds in Palm Beach; next time I visit my family on the island I’m going to have to call E.J. for an appointment. Thank you for writing about this!

    What a great store. I would love to have an hour or two there, because I own (and love) my predominantly vintage, yet classic, wardrobe. I would love to get my hands on a few Lilly jackets.


    emjkmj left a comment on 11/21/2011 at 9:30 PM:

    When I was in high school, I used to buy old items at vintage shops.  I loved showing my Grandfather things I would buy.  I remember showing him a vintage pair of loafers I bought, he would call them “Dead man’s shoes”... I can still hear his voice…


    MGM left a comment on 11/21/2011 at 9:27 PM:

    I’d pay $40 for those white loafers.  Looks like a great store.  Vintage stores are sort of like a personalized unstructured Ebay search.

    How often are you in PB? Are you on PB Proper, or WPB? I miss my days there, strolling down Worth, hitting the beach in the morning. Is that weird guy still the owner of the liquor store off Chilean? I think he was under house arrest when I was there last. Anywho, hope you have fun at Clematis By Night, the beaches, etc. OH, fishing is awesome off Lake Worth Pier if you didn’t know..
